i have received a german passenger list for 1862, i am trying to understand the meaning of a phrase. 'geburts und wohnort', google translations seems to think it has something to do with a birthplace. which makes sense since the abbreviation 'geb.' is used for 'born' in german.
this is the first image for a shipping list i have. i have seen other transcripts, but the native town or city mentioned is usually the residence of the passengers before leaving the country, not their birthplace.
is the meaning of the phrase birthplace, or place of residence?
